MURPHY’S LAW: Wild Tour, LeBron Giraffe, Fleetwood Mac

The Minnesota Wild Road Tour stop in Des Moines could not have provided better timing for the Iowa Wild. The NHL just capped one of its best months ever. Even though the NHL inexplicably plays its championship in the non-winter ice month of June…

Fans lined up around the block to meet two Minnesota Wild players. There’s clearly hockey momentum, and I think these guys with the Wild organization know what to do with it. Not so, Stars and Chops…

Black Heart Gold Pants tweet:

“You want to know how bad the Ferentz contract is? Four Twitter users believed our “Blackhawks title means bonus for Ferentz” post was real.”

It’s not bad if you’re Kirk Ferentz. Not his fault…

Can’t believe the Miami Heat victory parade nearly decapatated LeBron James like the giraffe in Hangover 3. Who planned this route, Marlins management? Check out the surprisingly close call:

The Heat comped $100,000 worth of champagne for the celebration. I’m trying to imagine turning in that expense report here. Nope. Can’t imagine…

No more NBA finals. No more Stanley Cup finals. Need Nik Wallenda back on the wire…

I’ve been naked. And I’ve been afraid. I don’t ever want both naked and afraid, and certainly not on national TV. Discovery channel promoted this relentlessly…

¬†West Des Moines names a street after Liang Chow. Smart. Chow doesn’t just train Olympic gold medalists, he prompts families from all over to move to Iowa. And he’s a nice guy…

The NCAA will announce its decision on sanctions for the University of Oregon. This could mean Iowa State’s not far behind. As previously stated, I don’t think Cyclone fans have much to worry about. These days news of violations, followed by the words “texts” or “calls” doesn’t set off alarm bells…

No Big Red. Nebraska will wear black against UCLA…

Beautiful and fun Celebration of Life for the legendary Jim Zabel this past Friday. Wish more Hawkeye and Zabel fans had made it. Still, it was nice to see, among others, Tom Davis, Gary Barta, Jim Walden, Ed Podolak, Ed Wilson, Chuck Long, Andy Fales, Van Harden, Randy Duncan, Courtney Greene and The Bear…

77-year-old Gary Player will pose nude for ESPN the Magazine’s body issue. Player is in great shape, for any age, but I’m not sure this will sell more magazines. Maybe fewer…

Jenny and I checked out ipods for Fleetwood Mac songs. Combined, we have 0. So I’m not sure it makes sense we paid more than $200 for two tickets to Wells Fargo Arena Wednesday, but we go our own way. Let’s hope it’s a good show…
